The Steelers won't try hard to bring back Willie Parker, according to an ESPN report.
No surprise here. Parker will be a free agent this summer and has already lost his starting job to Rashard Mendenhall. "Fast" Willie has looked more like "sluggish" Willie as he hit holes. Mendenhall is a likely first-round pick in 2010 fantasy drafts. Oct. 25 - 12:46 am et

When healthy, he could provide that burst and speed our offense lacks. But it would mean 2 injury prone RBs at the top spots on our depth chart.

Thoughts?

Me too, but if Best doesn't declare, Spiller is going top 8 IMO. That could leave the 49ers out of the hunt for him.

Spiller will go ahead of Best anyway even if he comes out.
NO.

Willie Parker is a pile. if he cant do anything with the Steelers line in front of him, what is he going to do here?

ill pass on Slow Willie Parker.
Running backs have a short shelf life and I think Willie's time has come and gone. Pass!!!!!!

As far as Spiller or Best.. the Niners cannot afford the luxury of passing on the OL and a passrusher at this time to take a platoon running back in round 1. I agree its a need and either guy would be great to have. I just think we need 2 OL with our first 3 picks and a passrusher with the other.
I hope we draft another RB next year, but I hope we take care of the O-Line and get a pure pass rusher first.
But Gore, Coffee and a draft pick (4th rounder hopefully) would still be effective next year, Coffee is still developing and could turn into a tough runner, but we still need a speed back for that change of pace element for the running game.

If were gonna impose our will with the running game we need more talent at RB besides getting better up front
He's got nothing left in the tank.
His best days are behind him. I'd pass on him.
Too much wear and tear.
i'd give him a shot if we don't draft spiller and if best doesn't declare
dudes, we are NOT drafting a RB in the first round.
